Booker announced his campaign in a video on Twitter, speaking about his upbringing, his life in Newark and laying out his vision or America to the beat of the Malcolm X Shabazz High School marching band.


A black teacher’s prayer

I pray that my students will be so lucky enough to arrive in a classroom with a culturally competent teacher who looks like them and is passionately and unapologetically black. And should they not land in a class with a teacher who does not share the same racial ancestry, my next prayer is that they will encounter a benevolent teacher who will love and celebrate them as I have done. I pray they will gain a wonderful pedagogue or role model who will tell them that the sky is the limit for them and that they can be whatever their heart so desires.
